CARING HANDS/PRESBYTERIAN HOMES OF GEORGIA OFFERING
We will collect the special offering for the Caring Hands Fund for the Presbyterian Homes of Georgia during the month of May. Presbyterian Homes of Georgia offers 6 distinct communities of retirement living for Georgia seniors. During its 72 years of operation, Presbyterian Homes has never had to ask any resident to leave based on their financial resources. The Caring Hands Fund is a vital part of ministry of the Presbyterian Homes of Georgia. Your gift to the fund helps financially burdened residents with the cost of their room and board, the cost of their meals, the cost of transportation to medical visits, and in many other ways. Please prayerfully consider a gift to the Caring Hands Fund during the month of May.
PENTECOST OFFERING TO BE COLLECTED, MAY 16 AND 23
The Pentecost Offering is one of the four special offerings of the Presbyterian Church USA which Fairview collects each year. This offering unites us in a church-wide effort to support young people in Christ and inspire them to share their faith, ideas, and unique gifts with the church and the world.
With this special offering collected on April 16 and 23, Fairview is allowed to retain 40% of the monies collected. This year, your Missions Committee has chosen The Musical Project with Immigrant Children established by On the Way Church as the recipient of our portion of the offering.
Since the Pentecost Offering started in 1998, Presbyterians have raised more than 15 million for ministries that benefit younger members of God’s family. We believe we are called to do even more to support and care for young people as they build a strong foundation of faith.
You can read the bulletin inserts today and next Sunday for more information on this offering, and you can use one of the envelopes on the table for your gift. Please make your checks out to Fairview, with Pentecost Offering on the check notation line.
Your Missions Committee thanks you for your constant caring for others in our world through your gifts to special offerings and collections done through our church throughout the year.
